My mother had a hobby of clipping obituaries out of newspapers, which she started before I was ever born. She said that they made her laugh and they made her cry. They gave her strength during trying times. After I was born, I too took up the hobby and later in life began to share some of the old epitaphs with friends. Tombstones I Have Known is a collection of those obituaries, witty epitaphs and a list of where famous people are buried. Later, I wrote newspaper articles and shared with my readers some of these old epitaphs. They wrote me letters telling me how they enjoyed them. Later, I sent copies to friends in the hospital and nursing homes. They told me it cheered them up. So, I decided to write this book to prove that there is some wit in death. It will make you laugh, cry and feel good!
